With wild weather everywhere, the beach has been rugged and rough, however for those who fished it, there was plenty of salmon around for entertainment.
The Ninety Mile beach has been interesting this month.
We have had some of the worst winds I have ever seen.
Some of the swells must have been huge as for the past few weeks before writing this most of the sand has disappeared leaving a huge cutaway in the beach.
What this does is place all the sand back out in the surf making it very shallow along most of the beaches.
Golden Beach seem to maintain a bit of a gutter however it seemed pretty shallow long the rest of Ninety Mile Beach.
This changes quickly though, and we only need a week of good weather and a wind change and some good gutters will form again.
Not many people have fished Ninety Mile Beach over the past month due to the weather, however we have had a couple of nice days and a few anglers have tried their luck.
The salmon have hung around however most have been average size and are weighing under 1kg.
There seems to be a lot of bird action out past the breakers beyond casting distance so there are more than likely large schools of bait and salmon out a bit wider.
The draught board sharks have been a nuisance as they always are in winter, but anglers a still having a crack for a gummy or two.
By September there will be gummies in close in better numbers and the draught board sharks will start to thin out a bit as well. I was looking at my diary the other day and noticed we have had some good gummy sessions in the last week of August for the past couple of years, so I’ll definitely be trying again in early September, especially if we get some nice nights.
